  1. Dont Call It a Comeback... Log 5/3/1


    Figured Id start this so I dont slack off. It is hard for me to start back so this will be good for me. Was sick for basically a month with the flu and bronchitis. It made me stop my cycle which was on the tail end anyway. PCT while sick is not ideal obviously. Was given tendon weakening meds that didnt even work so I was slow to get back to the weights.

    Tonight was the first time I had been in the gym. Tested out my strength a little.

    Bench was 225 for 12 = 1 rep max of 305

    Deadlift wa 495 for 5 = 1 rep max of 570

    On Thursday I will test out my squat and military press.

    I will be running a simple Wendler 5/3/1. Diet will be 8/16 fasting hopefully I will be able to slowly work it so I fast for even longer but we will see. Supplement choice isnt set in stone so I wont give that info up yet. Still taking PhytoSerms-347 and will probably take a 2nd bottle to keep the fun going.

    Anyone is welcome to join and ask questions or give advice.

    Glad to have you here Josh.

    Thanks again for all the info. Saved me a lot of time trying to gather all that info. Hope it wasnt too much trouble for you. Wasnt expecting all that.

    Well I like the idea of being able to stuff myself silly. Then I just drink a ton of water to hold me over.

    The goal will be to start my feeding frenzy a little before 12pm. Maybe a protein shake and some fruit around 2pm. Hit the weights around 3:30pm. Post workout shake and then gorge myself till I almost explode hopefully done before 6pm. Then at about 7:30PM a casein shake and something light just to keep me full till the next day. Not set in stone, but that is what makes sense to me right now.

    Wasn't a problem at all bud

    I would shoot kleen a message. He has been doing IF and can probably answer your questions better than I can. I believe Kabuki also has been doing a modified version of the Warrior diet for some time now.

    I really like the Green Apple flavor. Right now I'm using some Grape and that's pretty damn tasty too

    What does your accessory work look like? Might I suggest you do the Wendler/Westside Hybrid? I've got a couple of guys on that program & they're making big gains!!

    Subbed up and ready to see the highly anticipated Tomahawk comeback!!


    Yeah......I called it a comeback. hee-hee

    The Wendler 5/3/1 will be great.......after you've gotten your CNS back up to snuff. I wouldn't recommend starting off balls to the wall immediately after that long layoff because of illness. I would rather see you do a month or so of bodybuilding type training just to get your neuro-pathways fired back up and to kick start that wonderful muscle-memory. Then after a month of building up the poundages, attack that Wendler routine with rage and fearless abandon.

    I'd be willing to say that your immune system is not running at 100% just yet. Don't risk a setback by starting out too heavy and too hard. Let the first few weeks be a light breaking-in period.

    You'll not only get back to your previous level of strength, but will indeed surpass it altogether.
    THE PAIN YOU ENDURE TODAY WILL PRODUCE THE POWER YOU ENJOY TOMORROW!!

    Still got to figure that one out a little. This week Im just testing the strength I have left. You are welcome to give suggestion for accessory work. Im going to be honest and say Idk how much desire I have to try powerlifting anymore. I mean Im going to do this program to get stronger particular on the 4. But I want to actually not look like garbage which I have felt like I have.

    Well my plan is to use 90% of my max as the number used for percent finding. Another words:

    Bench 225*12= 305, 305*0.9=275 as my "max"
    Deadlift 495*5= 570, 570*0.9=515 as my "max"

    So this shouldnt be too rough on me. Do u agree or disagree? I know I do a lot more work and go more balls to the wall doing more of a bodybuilding routine. With this I will be doing 3 exercises a day 4 days a week.

    Well I tried 5/3/1 on bench my last cycle and really liked it. Now it is time to use it for the whole body. I was adding 10 pounds to my "max" each week on bench lol.

  19. In for the win Tom. I had to take it easy when I came off the broken finger, just 3-4 weeks doing 5x5 worked wonders for me then I went into my cycle routine that was much more intense. I highly recommend heading TG's advice on your lifting, at a minimum give it 2 weeks.
    If my direct and cynical approach bothers you, just ignore it. I'm just saying what you need to hear ;).

  20. in this. that diet looks interesting. I want to switch up my diet soon, I'm getting sick of what I'm currently doing.

  21. tom, checking in on your log.

    WELL DONE IS BETTER THAN WELL SAID

  22. In!! Thanks for the invite!

  23. Subbed!

    Seriously though didnt expect to have too many just stumble across this log.

    UPDATE

    Im sore as hell. Chest is only minor, but my whole back is screaming like...(use your imagination). The lower back I expect, but it is nice and sore all over basically.
    Didnt do anything today probably should have done some cardio, but I dont want to chance my tendons especially because the one the warned the most about was the Achilles.
    Tomorrow going to the store to pick up A LOT of food. So far Im liking the whole idea of fasting. Im hungry right now, but water gets me by well enough. Eventually I want to get to the point where I fast for more than 24 hours Next time I order some supps there will def be some BCAAs involved Any suggestions are welcomed and appreciated.

    The DOMS have reared their ugly head in thy direction, eh? That's what happens when you can't workout for a while. It's almost like starting over regarding the intense muscle soreness.
    It won't be long though until you're desparately trying to make yourself this sore. I throw insane shit my muscles' way in order to initiate that wonderful pain.

  26. I savor those nice and sore days...

    BCAA - smartpowders has the cheapest bulk, and you can flavor with crystal light

    Flavored BCAA - Xtend Watermelon is my favorite, I drink it too fast!

    haven't used it in awhile but watermelon extend is very tasty.

    i just ordered psyko/purple wraath, i don't think you can do much better, imo.
    WELL DONE IS BETTER THAN WELL SAID

  28. purple wraath > xtend imo... if you discount taste as an important factor

    I hope you didn't take that the wrong way, I wasn't saying to NOT message me, by all means if you have any questions feel free to hit me up with whatever and I will try my best to help out. I was just suggesting those two members as they are a little more experienced with it than I am.

    I have a couple books on it just havent gotten around to reading them. Maybe if you ask a hard enough question it will force me to crack one of them open and they will make there way up my list. I have been meaning to read them for so long now and just haven't, partly cuz I hate reading :smack: , but again I am here for you bruddah ask away
